Spanish course in Monteverde, Costa Rica!

Study Spanish in the middle of a rainforest! Take a Spanish course in Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve and you’ll discover countless plant and animal species, amid some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful landscapes. The maximum class size at our school is just four students, so you’ll receive plenty of individual attention and make rapid progress! Following your Spanish lessons, you can try horse riding in the hills, white water rafting, or even flying through the rainforest canopy on a zip-line!

Yaroslava - (Palma)
I was thrilled with my Spanish course in Palma. I can’t say one bad word about it! The 4 weeks flew by like 1 day. Lola is not only a gifted teacher but also a talented actress. It was easy to overcome any difficulties of translation thanks to her charm and creative nature. Using games and visual aids really help learning.

One of the region’s main attractions is the awe-inspiring Arenal Volcano, which towers over the sparkling waters of Lake Arenal and produces amazing lava flows. The Pacific coast of Costa Rica is also within easy reach, offering stunning beaches and exciting watersports! Learn Spanish in Monteverde and you’ll see nature at its most spectacular.

For the totally undivided attention of your tutors, Private Spanish Lessons are also available. Classes will concentrate on those aspects of the language that you have most difficulty with, so you’ll quickly overcome any problems and make remarkable progress!
